In-reply-to » Introduced a colleague to ed(1) today. “Ohh, that’s nice. I always wanted to have a tool like that.” 🥳 (This refers strictly to ed’s ability to edit files from a script. Like, “search for regex $foo, go down five lines, now search for $bar from here, then change $x to $y in the matching line.”)

@prologic@twtxt.net I think I’ve seen it scroll by once. 🤔 Will give it a try!

@movq@www.uninformativ.de @prologic@twtxt.net I only used sed(1) over all those years so far. And about 99.9% the substitute command alone. Gotta have a look at its brother.

In-reply-to » Surprise rain all day long, so the birds weren't around. Armed with rain trousers and rain jackets we went on a drizzle hike this afternoon. It was very nice. The 4°C didn't feel that cold at all. More like 10°C. The plastic layer made for a good greenhouse. I had to strip my gloves and beanie a few minutes into the walk.

As written, it really wasn’t too bad at all, @prologic@twtxt.net. Being in motion also helps. ;-) Oh yes, @justamoment@twtxt.net. This time the foggy morning extended to the evening and even into this morning now. :-D And will probably continue a few more days.

In-reply-to » @justamoment Hey I just cloned and tried this little game of yours! 😅 This is amazing, really quite good and in only ~600 lines of Go 👌 Very nice! I might show this to my youngest daughter to play 😆 -- Now you just need to have levels, sound, music and so on... 🤣

@prologic@twtxt.net for the implementation I approached with a decoupled visual tile based movement, inspired by early Pokemon games and older RPGs which is extremely short and simple to implement in any languages, it also works seamlessly both in 2d and 3d thanks to how it’s handled.

I recommend it for any new game dev who wants to try making something, it’s quick and easy.

@prologic@twtxt.net No way!

All those (Non) Features are the selling points of the game! 🤣

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Those foggy mornings always fascinated me.

In-reply-to » @darch I'm thinking we should do someyhing about the filters so that the screen real estate is not so used up? Media -- Like maybe hide them behind something so they don't always take up the space? 🤔

@darch@neotxt.dk Cool, usually the gradient is good when you have a closed area but if you don’t want an extra padding, you need JS. A way to fix it is to have the gradient only on the right with more space to scroll until it’s not covering the items below.

In-reply-to » Are we having a video call this weekend?

@prologic@twtxt.net Saturday @ 1200 UTC or Sunday@1200?

It’s 6am for me. 🤔 Usually I wake up at 7 on Saturdays b/c I start classes at 10am. Hmm, if I’m out of bed early I’ll join! Could you share the link again? I should bookmark it!

In-reply-to » Are we having a video call this weekend?

@prologic@twtxt.net @darch@neotxt.dk guys, today I’m not feeling well, I woke up at 5 am to take my wife to the airport, and after work I just came to die in bed, well, recovering from the flu and sleep a bit. Care to try tomorrow? My Saturday night, Sunday morning in Europe 🌅 and an unknown time in AU 😛 I know it’s difficult on Sundays, but Saturday afternoons are my best moment 😅

Yes, Thanks Scotty from marketing. Of course the new law has worked, it has worked wonderfully for Rupert Murdock and no-one else! 🤦‍♂️ Thanks for nothing you lousy Liberals 🤣

In-reply-to » Today, JHCon 2022 starts in South Bohemian city of Budweis (where the one and only true Budweiser Beer is brewed) - the annual meeting of Czech, Slovak and from time to time also Polish and Austrian ZX Spectrum users. I have been organizing it since January 2003, so it will be the 21st one. In 2019 we had to change place (my original high school got a new management and that cancelled all weekend events permanently), then in 2020 and 2021 CoViD-19 made it impossible to meet in bigger numbers, so I made just a small meetings each year in our countryside house for five or six people. This year will be kind of reboot of the whole event and I just hope, that someone will arrive. Z80 assembly time!

Twelve ZX Spectrum friends arrived in the first day. Nice. After two weird years 8bit people meet again. And everyone is visibly happy to see each other.

In-reply-to » 3 whole days in #Go I noticed my search history rolled back to: - "Convert an int to bool in Go" - "Swap two variables in Go" - "How to write a dictionary in Go"

This is easy! I know exactly what to do!

She says… 🤣

You won!

I said! 🥳

Needs more game play 🤗
